Durability

    Durability of alpine ski-bindings is essential for consistent function — retention, release, edge control and easy entry / exit.

    No matter how hard we try to preserve the newness of our skis — we might drop our skis on concrete or pavement.  Ski bindings must maintain their function even when this happens.  Sometimes, skis are stacked on top of each other in the luggage-compartment of a bus or they become knocked against each other on the outside of a gondola.  Bindings must operate as planned, even after repeated hits and bumps.  During repeated exposure to ski wax, ice, mud, road-salt — in a wide range of extreme temperatures — bindings must function as planned (see Footnote).

    International standard ISO 9462 tests, in-part, for durability — but Howell SkiBindings go further.  Howell SkiBindings are rigorously tested on-snow during extreme weather, snow and rogue conditions.

    This is why only Howell SkiBindings come with a Lifetime Limited Warranty.

Footnote:   We require that bindings never be transported on a car's external ski-rack.  This is perhaps the worst environmental exposure to which a binding could be subjected.  No binding will function properly after being exposed to extensive road salt, cinders and/or sand.  Howell SkiBindings are not covered under warranty if they are transported on an external ski-rack.
